Ahahha. Can totally relate to this.
Sometimes during gigs, due to nervousness, I blank before songs. No damn idea of what I'm supposed to play until the guitarist plays the first note :-)
Then it is ok.
A few times I asked the bass player to hum the beginning of the next song to me while the singer was doing the usual audience interaction between songs... embarassing I know, that's why we have jokes about drummers :-)
Writing down the score of the songs (or the first bars, etc) and leave it next to me helps, but sometimes I forget to do it.
